The Eastern Mediterranean University (EMU) and Roma Sapienza University collaboration has started to bear its fruit. Prof. Dr. Mihaela Gavrila from the Roma Sapienza University visited the EMU Faculty of Communication, giving a talk on the changing workspaces of new media technologies. The opening speech of the talk that took place at the Aysel Aziz Hall as a result of the EMU and Roma Sapienza University collaboration was made by Department of Radio- TV and Film Studies Chair Assoc. Prof. Dr. Bahire Efe Ozad.

Prof. Dr. Gavrila drew attention to the emergence of new work spaces as a result of technology, stating than in Italy Twitter plays an agenda setting role. Gavrila noted that she agrees with Steve Jobs regarding technology only being a tool, indicating that creativity is in the forefront of new media content. Gavrila noted that new communication technologies should be evaluated as the continuation of traditional media, rather than a new type of media.
